The 1,000 horsepower club
Why settle for just an average car when you can have 1,000 horsepower?
Despite the economic crisis and the ongoing push for environmental friendliness, man continues to push the boundaries of on-road performance. It wasn't that long ago that a 500 horsepower car was considered top notch, but over the past few years this magic number has become commonplace and downright affordable - Ford's Shelby GT500 for instance, retails for less than $55,000. Nowadays, the bar has been raised to 1,000 horsepower. But vehicles with four-figure horsepower ratings aren't as uncommon as you might think. Meet some official members of the 1,000 horsepower club by watching the slideshow.
